FREE. I love the atmosphere there, and it is geared for Russian BTs (and not yet BTs). You can call and speak to Rabbi Notik about it, he is a really special person.

Heritage is all Russians. Also khal Chassidim has lots of Russians and baalei teshuvos.

Free is Chabad so that has to be your derech.

We are not chabad, more yeshivish lite I guess

Been a BT for over 20 years. Russians in the shul are not a must, but need childrens programming and growth-oriented community. Thank you.

Do you know where you plan to live? Chicago has so many shuls it’s hard to give advice. You really have to try them yourself and see what you like best.

We visted twice. I believe West Rogers Park is the biggest community, and I just looked up crime stats, so we will be looking north of Pratt.

Heritage if you want a shul of basically all Russians.
Khal Chassidim if you want a more main stream (chassidish Rav, but not at all chassidism mispallelim) shul with Russians as part of it.
